the western world through a Namibian mirror

It is a fact that after arriving in Katima Mulilo for no more than one week a resonate feeling of confusion subsisted and wouldn’t leave my side. Sure, maybe the Malarone contributed but according to my doctor the Malarone would not be the root of the problem after a couple of days, because at that point my body would…

kyoto’s cherry blossoms

What’s there to say about Kyoto that hasn’t already been said :)? It’s paradise – utter paradise, during the cherry blossom season. And I am sure that the paradise still remains after all the cherry trees have lost their blossoms! There was a clear sense of enjoyment as soon as we arrived at Kyoto station with…

introducing my new friend

You wake up after a night of partying because, well, you were welcoming 2016 the night before. We were desperate for coffees and green smoothies and that’s what we found when we walked into our favourite breakfast place * @aroma kaffeebar * in Munich.

tiramisu

For those of you that know me, you will already know that my favourite dessert is tiramisu! I think it’s a super versatile dessert that can satisfy any sweet craving. However, I had to say goodbye to this perfectly delicious sweetness because unfortunately it contains gluten, BUT, my wonderful resourceful half discovered gluten-free biscuits exist…
